All my green tomatoes have now ripened in their baskets in my kitchen. They are sadly 🙁 the last garden tomatoes and green peppers for our salads. Tomato season has come to an end.
I have to say, however, that it’s been a really super tomato year. I made sauce, sun-dried tomatoes, salsa, etc. I froze and canned about 100 pounds of tomatoes, producing 50 pounds now in my pantry and freezer. And, who knows how many tomatoes we ate fresh … sliced on salad with mozzarella and basil … yumm
I think this year should be crowned the “Year of the Tomato” (as well as the “Year of the Big Drought”) for my gardens. I think I’ll make some buttons for my sidebar.
